The Mandalorian is a big-budget sci-fi series that is an outgrowth of a multi-billion dollar franchise. It is a no-brainer that the series is recognized and adored all over the world. Fan service, nostalgia, and whole new experiences combine to make it one of the world’s most popular series projects. However, it’s not exactly the type of thing you’d expect to sweep the board when the awards are handed out.
On a technical level, The Mandalorian is flawless. So, it’s hardly surprising that Season 2 of The Mandalorian has won three Emmys. Lucasfilm’s Star Wars programming has enjoyed a revival in the last couple of years. This, and notably with the advent of exclusive shows on Disney+.
There is no doubt that The Mandalorian was an instant sensation when it debuted on Disney+. The series stars Pedro Pascal as a masked main character alongside Hollywood A-listers like Giancarlo Esposito and Carl Weathers. In 2020, season 1 was nominated for 15 Emmy Awards and won 7 of them. These included one for best drama series. There were 24 additional nominations for Season 2. This put Star Wars in an elite class of brilliance once again. Lucasfilm is witnessing the fruits of its hard work now that the Creative Arts Emmys are underway.
The Mandalorian received three Emmys for its second season on Disney+ at the 2021 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. “Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup” was given to the show and beat out the other contenders in that category. These included the following:
On top of that, The Mandalorian was named the winner in the category of “Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series” against the following candidates:
A third award was given in the category of “Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (one hour)“. On the list of other nominees, you’ll find:
The Mandalorian has won 10 Emmys in two seasons much before the Primetime Emmy Awards even broadcast. Naturally, The Mandalorian has shown its worth in terms of both production quality and staying power. In contrast to The Boys and Lovecraft Country, Lucasfilm looks to have hit on a winning recipe.
Even though the majority of shows are in technical categories like cinematography and makeup. Disney and Lucasfilm can use these accolades as a tremendous boost while creating future seasons. Additionally, The Mandalorian managed to surpass the popularity of the Skywalker Saga in terms of critical acclaim.
With the Primetime Emmys less than a week away, fans will be watching closely to see whether Star Wars adds to its award tally. Having been nominated in four categories, Lucasfilm should have a good shot at a repeat performance on the Emmys’ biggest night. With seven triumphs at last year’s event, the Mandalorian may have an overflowing trophy case once again.
The Mandalorian’s third season will begin principal shooting any day now. The 2021 Emmys will broadcast live on CBS on September 19, 2021. It has been announced that Cedric the Entertainer would host the awards event this year.
After the two-day break between September 11 and 12, the Creative Arts Emmys will be divided up into three separate events. This year’s Creative Arts Awards will not be televised live like the main ceremony, rather an edited version will be shown on September 18.
According to current estimates, The Mandalorian Season 3 will premiere on Disney+ in the second half of 2022. As a result, Brendan Wayne, a Mandalorian stuntman, thinks the next set of episodes will be closer to those from season one than the second group of episodes that broadcasted in 2020.
“I think we’ve introduced the world in which Mando exists now. Not that there aren’t going to be new things, I’m sure… I think there will be a lot fewer introductions, and a lot more going back towards the first season of delving deeper into the character and things like that I think,” Wayne expressed on an episode of the Star Wars Sessions podcast.
In addition, he also shared that he hasn’t read the script yet. This is what the stuntman said, “Have I read one script? No. Have I heard some things? Sure. So I’m guessing. But I can tell you this. If anyone’s going to be able to continue telling a story, it’s Jon [Favreau]. And raising the stakes? It’s Jon.”
